We wanted to start the new year on a positive and hopeful note and what better way to do that than remember the first few moments after meeting your brand new little one? Whether you had your baby yesterday or 10 years ago, had a surrogate, adopted or came to be a mama some other way we asked you to share a picture of you meeting your little one for the first time over on Instagram. The amazing moments and photos that you shared were just what we needed to jump into a brand new year feeling hopeful for the future and just so darn grateful to be able to care for these sweet little ones. Check out our featured mamas below and what they wanted to share about these magical moments and if you're looking for a seriously good sob sesh check out the full collection of posts at the #tubbytoddnewborn hashtag.
